INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SIGN G-ROBERT GRIFFIN TO PRACTICE SQUAD

Posted by coltsindianapolis on December 12, 2012 – 8:53 am

The Indianapolis Colts today signed guard Robert Griffin to the practice squad.

Griffin, 6-6, 330 pounds, was originally selected by the New York Jets in the sixth round (203rd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Baylor and was waived on August 31.

Griffin was a two-year starter at Baylor, appearing in 26 games (22 starts). He transferred to Baylor from Navarro College (Corsicana, Texas) where he helped Navarro to an 11-1 record and No. 3 national ranking as a sophomore in 2009.


* I used to spend a significant amount of time here. But between Nadine's harasment and genral stalkerlike behavior, I decided to roll over to Stampede. Her equally clueless counterpart over there, Brad Wells has departed and so now it will be my Colts home. What a shame. ;)

He was the best Robert Griffin on Baylor's team. :thmup:

Lol! I met this kid at a hotel in Texas. I got on the elevator with him and asked him if he thought it was strong enough to lift him. He seemed like a very nice kid.

He played RT and G for a fast paced team. I think he has a lot of potential but he's not ready for prime time just yet.

Not really as Hicks was signed off our practice squad to the Jets active roster. We signed a guy that was out of football to our practice squad.

I would definitly like to have Hicks right now but we did not trade him, he was picked off our PS......Which given our issues at both Guard spot and the potential he has he should have never been on. Oh well cant change it now

I know we didn't actually trade him, but Jets snagged him, and we took somebody from Jets.

We definitely missed out on using him. Especially if he's on Bucs active roster now!

Did he eat himself out of town? Here's the guy replacing him:


The Indianapolis Colts today signed offensive tackle Lee Ziemba to the practice squad and released offensive tackle Robert Griffin from the practice squad.

Ziemba, 6-6, 320 pounds, played in six games with the Carolina Panthers last season. He was originally selected by the Panthers in the seventh round (244th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Auburn and was waived on December 11, 2012.

At Auburn, Ziemba set a school record with 52 consecutive starts, starting every game of his career. As a senior in 2010, he earned the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, which is awarded to the best blocker in the conference.

    So happy sixers got the 3 pick. Noel, Embiid and Russell will be great. With Indiana sucked just a tiny bit more so we could get the heat pick. GO SIXERS
